The City of Seattle opened three new Curative COVID-19 testing kiosks at locations across the city in the past couple of weeks.

These additional walk-up kiosks were placed in north, central and south Seattle to provide more testing for residents. The kiosks will initially operate from noon to 3 p.m., and afterwards from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays.

According to a city press release, testing coordinators selected the new kiosk locations based on demand, rate of positive COVID-19 cases and with a focus on serving underserved populations. They are located at:

North Seattle: Lower Woodland Park

Uptown/Seattle Center: Second Avenue and Republican, near the Seattle Repertory Theatre

South Seattle: Old UW Laundry site west of Mt. Baker Light Rail Station

Locations are now listed on the curative website, and clients can register for kiosk testing appointments. The additional kiosks are expected to increase daily testing capacity by more than 1,500 tests.

According to the press release, the new kiosks allow clients to use an observed and directed self-collected oral fluid swab COVID-19 test. A Curative staff member is available at each location to assist clients. Results are delivered electronically within 48 hours. As with other city-sponsored no-cost testing sites, individuals must pre-register online. Potential clients can access registration to schedule appointments at www.curative.com or through the city’s testing website, www.seattle.gov/mayor/covid-19/free-covid-19-testing/covid-19-testing-yes-symptoms. Hours of operation may be adjusted depending on demand. Clients will not be charged and will not receive a bill, regardless of insurance status. For uninsured clients, Curative will seek reimbursement from state and federal resources including the Families First Coronavirus Response Act Relief Fund for the cost of the test.
